UPDATE: WPCNR has confirmed that according to County Legislator David Tubiolo actual first shots will start March 3 at the new facility, but scheduling for your shot in Yonkers and Mount Vernon will begin today February 24. A Yonkers correspondent of ours says the telephone line already has a long waitime and most citizens are calling not using the computer, which is much faster.
